Executive Board Member for Education and Children’s Services Cllr Glynog Davies said:

“On behalf of the council, I would like to congratulate all our students on their AS and A level results. Once again it has been a very difficult year, but all their dedication and hard work has paid off and they should be extremely proud of themselves.
“These results are fully deserved, and I would like to wish all our students every success for the future, whichever path they choose to follow.
“I also want to thank all our teaching staff whose jobs have been even harder this year yet again, and these results are testament to all their excellent work and commitment.
“And we can’t forget the extraordinary support of family, friends and all the support staff in helping our students to reach their full potential.”

Director of Education and Children’s Services Gareth Morgans added:

“Congratulations and well done to all our students, this year has been extremely challenging for both students and our teaching staff and I am extremely proud of the dedication and resilience that has been shown by them all. I wish you all the very best for the future.”
